Story 1: Mary & Anthony
Mary has belonged to Anthony since the day she was born. They’ve known each other their whole lives, but he won’t touch her until she says, ‘I Do.’
Their parents' story should have been a cautionary tale, but when Mary finally agrees to Anthony’s proposal, they run away to Vegas to tie the knot.
But what do they do when things don’t go according to plan and they find themselves caught between a Russian sniper and his runaway daughter?
Lock themselves in a hotel room and pop some cherries!
Story 2: Samuel & Nika
Samuel’s twin sister, Mary, is off to Vegas to marry his best friend, Anthony. Samuel’s heading to Sin City with them to give her away, but trouble in the form of a sneaky brunette stops him dead in his tracks.
Nika’s on the run, and she’s found herself backed into a corner. But she’s been trained on how to defend herself, especially against a big beast like Samuel.
From the first look, he was finished and had no intention of ever letting her go.
You begged for the story of Mary and Anthony, and here it is! The final chapter in the Taking the Fall series closes with two short stories on the children of Carter, Layla, Saint, and Jeanette.
Warning: These stories are just as fierce, just as strong, and just as steamy as the rest of the series. These novellas can be read as standalones but will be enjoyed even more after reading the Taking the Fall series.
Fall into Place by Alexa Riley was just…wow. I loved Carter and Cherry from Taking the Fall, as well as, Saint and Jeanette. Now, after reading Anthony/Mary and Samuel/Nika’s stories… this novella was the cherry on top of a really hot series and I could not put it down.
Fall into Place starts off with Anthony and Mary’s story, the children of Saint/Jeanette and Carter/Cherry, respectively. They’ve known each other all their lives and are in love…and both virgins. Anthony “Tony” has been holding off on making love to Mary until they’re married, which he has been trying to get her to agree to for years. Mary finally agrees and decides she wants to run off with Tony to Vegas and get married. And that is when all the fun begins…
Samuel, Mary’s twin brother, comes along for the ride to see his sister get married to his best friend. However, a job opportunity to catch a skip (since Tony and Samuel are bounty hunters) arises and then story two with Samuel and the skip, Nika, begins to unfold. (Out of the two couples, I really liked Samuel and Nika).
I love how Ms. Riley has interwoven the two stories. Focusing on each couple separately, Ms. Riley keeps both stories exciting and fresh without repetition of scenes between the two stories (as each story happens simultaneously of the other) by only giving us the POVs of the main couple during each story. This really helped to not reveal anything big from Samuel/Nika’s story during Anthony/Mary’s, which made reading both stories more enjoyable for me.
Both couples had great chemistry and each were hot and sexy. Just how I love Alexa Riley’s books. I loved both stories, and the ending was great. I can’t wait to continue reading more by this author.
